Together with your peers, we will create an annotated bibliography of contemporary research (post-2000) and engage in collaborative writing and editing of annotations before publishing the bibliography. The final published product will serve as a resource for ourselves going forward in our own educational practice as well as the larger community of practice of educators in the online environment.
Gather peer-reviewed academic readings that you have come across this semester, or seek out new research. Mine the readings you have added to your notes shared with the class, or included in your blog posts. Conduct new searches using the UAF Rasmuson library databases or through Google Scholar. Choose three articles that you found particularly interesting or are foundational in your thinking and approach to teaching with technology. Using readings that were assigned is acceptable, but please limit this to only one of the three that you choose. Add citations for these three readings to the shared Google document (will be shared in Slack) along with a very concise 40-100 word annotation in APA style. An example is included in the initial document.
It is important to have citations and annotations written during the first week of this assignment so that collaborative revision can ensue the following week.
Now the collaborative aspect of this assignment begins.
Read the citations contributed by others. Skim the articles. Exercise your judgement on their relevance and make suggestions accordingly. Should this article be included? Is there a better or more seminal article on the same topic?
Next, read each annotation closely and edit it for clarity, conciseness, and accuracy. Engage with the document, either in full editing mode, suggestion mode, or through commenting.
Return to the document and respond to the edits, suggestions and comments of others. Publish the final result to your blog along with a short ~250 word post describing your views on the articles chosen (this is where you can write an extensive analysis of an article beyond that 100 word limit for each citation.) Post to Slack and/or the PLN tool of your choice, such as Twitter.
